The lightest colored Belgian style pilsner malt produced from the finest Canadian 2 Row barley.  Gambrinus Pilsner is perfectly suited for single step infusion mashing.  Flavor characteristic include a strong, sweet malt flavor with hints of honey and suggestions of vanilla.  This malt has enough enzymatic power to be 100% of the base malt.

Remember that pilsner malts are kilned at lower temperatures, and require a 90 minute boil to boil off the pre-cursor to Dimethyl sufide (DMS), which can lend your beer a cooked corn characteristic that is not pleasant.

As many of you know, we have kind of an obsession with malt around here, and I€™m always looking to try different maltsters and see how they compare to the high quality malts that we already carry.  I€™ve been pleasantly surprised so far with Gambrinus Pils.

While it is technically a North American malt (comes out of Canada), this is the closest pils I've found to Belgian pilsner.  My gauge is always Synergy Pilsner from Briess malting, which seems to nail a perfect balance between the German Pilsner cracker-y character and the Belgian Pilsner sweet character.  Gambrinus is still in the middle, but way more on the Belgian sweet side than the German cracker-y side.  Not quite as sweet as the Belgian pilsner, but very close!
